ARRANGEMENT

Section I, Series 8. Affiliates, 1786-1978. (Institutions merged with the Pennsylvania Hospital)

State law 50 P.S. 7111 prohibits the use of all patient mental health records.

The Pennsylvania Hospital Historic Collections is currently revising it’s patient record access policy for all medical patient records held in the Archives. As of right now, ALL patient records are closed to the public. Our new policy will be posted here as soon as possible. We truly regret the inconvenience this causes. All non-patient related material is closed for 75 years from its creation. Certain restrictions might still apply on specific records.
